Upcoming Services

Each Sunday, we gather around story and song, silence and spoken word. Worship, as with Religious Education and small groups and classes, are guided by our monthly theological theme. Our services include sermons from our Ministers and guest speakers, music from our choir and other featured musicians, and various celebrations throughout the year.
